I'm trying to install recent git version ( on RHEL3. Yes, I
know it's old and unsupported but it is a must if I want to migrate to
git from subversion.

I've compiled and installed from source all the necessary
dependencies: perl 5.10.0, openssl, swig, subversion 1.5.5 (with perl
bindings), and, of course, git.

After the installation, I try to run the following command:
'git svn clone svn://svn_server/svn/proj/trunk proj-git'.

But it fails miserably with the following output:

Can't locate loadable object for module SVN::_Ra in @INC (@INC
contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/i686-linux /usr/local/
lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.0/i686-linux /usr/
local/lib/perl5/5.10.0 .) at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/
i686-linux/SVN/Base.pm line 59
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/
5.10.0/i686-linux/SVN/Ra.pm line 5.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/local/libexec/git-core//git-svn
line 30.

I believe I have all the required perl modules at their correct
locations, and git is using the correct perl version (5.10.0) at '/usr/

So, what could be causing this issue?
Is there any chance of making this work on RHEL 3 machine?

Thanks in advance!
